Pros: lenient with schedules as long as they are adhered to, good people, national company
Cons: shows favoritism, does not stick to their own deadlines
A typical day at work in my position is hectic and can be overwhelming. My responsibilities are the heartbeat of the company, any change or error in the information I enter affects the entire company. At this time, AFS is growing and expanding at a rate I personally think is dangerous. They are piling more work on their employees by adding more and more clients, but not offering any more compensation. In fact, several of our benefits we currently receive will no long be offered before this year is up.
The company is generally lenient and understanding of people's personal life. If there is an emergency or a need for a day off for an appointment, they generally work well with their people. The employees work well with each other, and there are several really good managers, but the same cannot be said for all.
Once the company gets thru its transition period, I believe it will return to being a great career opportunity.
